Silver tea sets, fine china and tiered platters of sweets and fresh sandwiches adorned the table settings at the heritage tea at the Fernie Museum on Saturday.

Servers wore shirts, skirts and aprons from the early 1900’s and guests wore elaborate hats and jewelry fitting of days gone by. Tea drinkers were treated to a juicy performance as four ladies gossiped about their Coal Creek neighbours in 1905 fashion.

Lovely flowers decorated the tables along side handwritten notes. Several flower bouquets were sent to the museum in congratulations of their grand opening.
